SLUT (noun): a woman with the morals of a man
“No bad women, only bad laws”
Maïa Izzo-Foulquier, Zelda Weinen, Thelma Hell.

Sunday, September the 6th, at 5pm – Villa Vida, Linke Wienzeile 102, 1060 Wien.

Maïa Izzo-Foulquier was an artist who primarily used photography as her main medium, documenting her emotional life and that of her friends and encounters, creating narrative structures directly related to her personal and social experiences.
She was also Zelda Weinen, a feminist rap icon, singer and producer since 2017. Rapping texts imbued with melancholia and spleen, but also highly political, Zelda Weinen performed gigs wearing a wedding dress.

As Thelma Hell, she has been a sex worker since 2015, who studied sociology, political science and graduated from the école des Beaux-Arts de Nice. She was a spokesperson for the sex workers’ union STRASS, a member of the collective Art Whore Connection. Through the union and collective, she met and worked with the artist and sex worker activist Marianne Chargois. They organized together the SNAP festival (whores’ art festival), and Maïa was the cinematographer of Marianne’s film “Empower” (2018), that we will show one of the three parts on the occasion of this event.

Before she decided to die in December 2019, she wrote a last text on the blog My Red Light – News of sex industries – dedicated to sex industry and sex workers’ rights hosted by French newspaper Libération – where she explains “At the beginning, there is luxury and there is poverty. Poverty, in one of its most elitist forms, means being a graduate of several prestigious schools and yet having no place whatsoever on the job market. Luxury means the luxury of choice. The ability to choose, basically, between working in the kitchen of a McDonalds, sitting in the cash register of a department store, dealing drugs, or turning tricks. Having tried all of these once, I quickly made my choice. Tricking allows me to be self-employed, to choose my hours, my rates, and my conditions, and – because it has historically developed around the struggles of workers and feminists – to situate myself politically.” Maïa’s choices and commitments were radical and complete, and she was sharing it with her sex workers sisters and friends. Khya Derain is a sex worker who lives in Vienna since few years, who knew her and is part of her community; she will engage the discussion about sex worker’s art, work, networks, struggles…

 

This screening and talk are organized on the occasion of the exhibition “Propaganda Women: Maïa Izzo-Foulquier, Thelma Hell, Zelda Weinen” at Gallery Emanuel Layr, in the context of Curated by Vienna, 5th September – 3rd October, 2020.
